Jana Meyer

I grew up in Germany where I started riding Icelandic Horses at age 5 and quickly fell in love with them. I knew early on that I wanted this passion to become my profession, so I spent a lot of time taking clinics and lessons, doing internships and working towards my IPVZ trainer licenses.

I am still just as passionate about these wonderful horses, and I very much enjoy sharing my love and knowledge.

It is my goal as a trainer and instructor to bring riders and their horses closer together and to help them with their communication and understanding for each other.

Alex Pregitzer

I am a German Certified Icelandic Horse Trainer (IPZV Trainer C - IPZV is the German Icelandic Horse Congress) and a USIHC national sport judge B. I have over 30 years of experience with different horse breeds and riding styles.

Over the past 15 years since my husband Andreas and I moved to the US, I have traveled to Germany and Iceland for internships, lessons and seminars and have worked with many master trainers to further educate myself. I continue to pursue my passion by furthering my studies of the Icelandic horse whenever possible. As an active member of the United States Icelandic Horse Congress (USIHC), I greatly enjoy working for it's education committee as well as the QUARTERLY magazine.

After scribing and co-judging with many international FEIF judges, as well as attending judging seminars with Marlise Grimm and Thorgeir Gudlaugsson, I got certified as a national judge B in 2016.
